People booking holidays to Thailand may want to visit two of the country’s latest arrivals during their trip.

Anyone who has booked flights to Thailand may be intending to  visit one of the country’s elephant sanctuaries during their stay.

Travellers who want to see something different may choose to head to the Tha Lad region in north-eastern Thailand where two baby elephants are drawing big crowds.

Approximately two weeks ago Thong-Kum and Thong-Tang were born and are thought to be the first pair of twin male elephants in the world.

One onlooker who had travelled from a neighbouring town to see the newborns told the Times: “They are a bit wrinkly and ugly at the moment but I’m sure as they grow up they will get really cute.”

Thai society holds elephants in high regard, with the gentle creatures a national symbol for the country.

Many tourists travel to places such as Chiang Mai, where there are several elephant camps that holidaymakers can visit for a day or volunteer at for a longer period of time.
